We’re Mike and Melody, two crafty and musical tinkerers who met one night and fell in love. Doing a DIY wedding was hard work, but also a lot of fun that paid off in the end. We took many liberties with our big day, but stuck with the basic formula that an awesome wedding = good food, good booze, and good music. We’ll show you how we filled in the other details.
Visualizing the dozens of details that need to be planned is key. Mike found a big chalk board being discarded by a local high school and this was used as our organizational home base.
Step 1: Save-The-Dates
Being collectors, we had an extensive inventory of unused cardstock, so we took what was on hand to make save-the-date postcards (which also saved on postage).
Melody drew a silly drawing in MS Paint and then imported it into Photoshop and pasted in photographs for the heads.
